  1. I like these peanut butter oatmeal banana muffins. There's nothing super special about them but they do taste good and are quick to put together.

    1. Apple Bars - can add a scoop of protein powder to the bars, and they're no bake!

      1. not a recipe but love the Fiber One bars when I'm running out the door early. They also make excellent yogurt (Fiber One key lime, vanilla, peach, strawberry). If she likes almonds, they now have nice pack size for on the run too. (energy through class)

        1. Organic Food Bars, available at TJs. http://www.organicfoodbar.com/
          We get the vegan, Belgian chocolate chip, and Omega.

            I make a weekly batch of Alton Brown's granola bars. You can find the recipe on the Food Network site or I'll provide if you don't come across it.

          2. Buy a canister of Quaker Oats and follow the recipe for the vanishing oatmeal cookies, but replace the butter with the same amount of mashed ripe bananas. I replace half of the flour with whole wheat flour, add dried fruits, and cut back on the white sugar (since the banana and dried fruit add sweetness). Make them bigger than your average cookie and I recommend using parchment, since they don't have enough fat to slide off the sheet well. They're really delicious.
